    I understand your frustration brother...but they keep asking the same question LOL.

    Most people in this world want magical answers to their problems. And I truly wish I could help them ūüėě

    We should have a sticky topic for most frequently asked questions. Who is up for contribution? I am up.

    @gopalakrishnachThanks for the response. Any guess as to why they would want to do administrative processing when all the relevant documents are already provided. i am curious as to what would have prompted for the Admin processing. 

    You could have asked that while the officer handed 221g slip over to you. If you want me to take a guess, I would say they want to verify you did not violate F1 status by using illegal CPT. 

  3. Nobody here can calculate any chances for anything. That would be absurd to ask in the first place. My suggestion is to work with your criminal attorneys and immigration attorneys to review your case and any complications that may arise because of all this. 

  4. It will not help you now but I wish most people knew that nothing comes out good from talking to police. Ever. I am not saying that one should hide the truth, I am simply saying that you don't have to say that to police right there when everybody is under stress . However, that's what happens most of the time. We all are humans. Mistake  happens and its all a learning experience.   Again, you should only be talking to professional attorneys before you make a decision because there is no point of making a decision if one doesn't know all he pros and cons of making one.

  5. Elaborate it further please.

    If you are on OPT/F1 and COS was not done for any reason, then you will stay in F1 status until you get COS done or leave country and get H1b stamp using approved i-797 and come back under H1b status. you cannot simply file for H1b extension when you have no H1b status to begin with. 

    Your employer can file again next year and try to get COS done for you. Or you can find a cap exempt employer and get COS done to H1b anytime.

  6. Your best and quickest path would be to request your employer to issue you an i140 approval copy or the receipt number to say the least. If you are filing FOIA as an alternative, make sure you do it the right way, in other words, get help of professional attorneys who deals with FOIS requests. USCIS has sent empty letters in the past for a lot of legit i140 requests.

  7. Another thing to consider is that you will probably not get another F1 based on documents issued by Cumberlands. 

    And yes, CBP can deny your entry as well (If they have credible evidence against the Cumberlands). A simple google search tells a lotta bad things about this university. IMHO , you should not travel if you are planning to come back while your associations with Cumberlands are current.

  8. Dates keep opening randomly. There is no short way to find it without paying and trying to schedule an appointment. Asking for appointment dates without paying fee and actually trying to schedule one is pure useless. If you are not able to get one , then keep trying and you should be able to get one in next week or so. 

    This is what I tell everyone . Pay fee and try to schedule. 

  9. Talk to your new employers attorneys and ask for their help. 

    You can also request your current employer to share i797 copy as they have to share it by law. You can show them what they are doing is illegal and stand up for it.  They are most probably trying to play ball and want you to sign the worthless contract which may or may not even legal binding. 

    Again, start working with attorneys with this matter, you will not have any clear path here.

  10. For US visa, you only need 1 full blank page for the visa stamp . US doesn't care about any space for the port of entry stamp . They will stamp the class of admission and validity anywhere they find space and if no space is there, they will stamp on top of other old stamps. So I would say you should have 1 for the visa foil. Some countries want you to have 2 full pages for port of entry stamps but US do not care about it.

  11. Generally there should not be an issue in getting F1 renewed with an OPT endorsed i120 and a valid EAD in hand. However there are many moving parts here. 

    - Did you ever violate F1 status/OPT rules ?

    - Did you do multi year CPT or OPT or day1 CPT ?

    - Any criminal records ?

    All of the above¬†can create issues for you. I would suggest to get a professional review of your case done by a competent attorney.¬† Some officers have known to reject OPT based F1 applications because F1 is for study ūüė쬆 . Also there have been times where F1 was denied because the applicant had only a month or so left on OPT. Travel on OPT in general is not suggested because of these reasons.¬†
